A Special…Rewarding Journey
Told from the perspective of a humble father, who at times questioned God and his own worthiness, this book addresses the unique challenges of raising a special needs child.
Facing a mountain of doubts and debt, the Vujicics feared their son would never be able to get out of bed, let alone receive an education, support himself, or have a family of his own. And they questioned how a loving Father in heaven could have allowed this to happen.
Yet once they gave up their narrow expectations for the perfect child, their imperfect son taught them that there are no limits to what a determined, faith-filled, and unstoppable individual can accomplish with the help of supportive parents and a caring God.
Boris candidly addresses this familys journey as Nick becomes aware ofand overcomesthe extent of his disabilities, as well as bullying, despair, and suicidal impulses. Other challenges included the stress a child with a disability put on their marriage and not neglecting the needs of their other children.
Overflowing with inspiration and practical advice, Raising the Perfectly Imperfect Child helps every parent understand that they can find the strength to give a child what is needed, despite the challenges faced. And the results include the rewards of a satisfying and joyful spiritual life.

"This book is a profoundly moving, triumphant testimony to what it means to be an extraordinary parent. Embracing who your child is, coupled with unconditional love, high expectations, and faith all open the door to unlimited possibilities. Raising the Perfectly Imperfect Child is a deeply inspirational, heart-wrenching, and heartwarming journey that shines a bright light on exemplary parenting."
Robin Berman, MD, author of Permission to Parent: How to Raise Your Child with Love and Limits
"This book is not for the faint of heart. It deals honestly with Nicks physical disabilities and the difficulties his parents faced, but it is written from a distinctively Christian perspective....If you know someone who has a child with disabilities, this book is not only well worth the read; its a must-read."
